After months -and years- of rumors Lucy Durack (@lucydurack) has finally announced she has changed her WICKED bubble for yet another pink and shinny ball gown: Lucy will be Australia’s new Elle Woods in the local production of Legally Blonde.
She will be starring alongside other former WICKED fellows, Rob Mills as Warner and David Harris as Emmett. Also staring, Erika Heynatz as Brooke and Cameron Daddo as Professor Callahan.
Legally Blonde the Musical will take you from the social whirl of California Campus life to Harvard’s Halls of Justice with Australia’s brightest new heroine (and of course, her Chihuahua, Bruiser). The verdict? This much fun shouldn’t be legal!
Legally Blonde premieres at the Sydney Lyric from October 5, 2012.

NEW EDIT and EDITOR’S DISCLAIMER:Upon several enquiries and messages, I want to state that this post is NOT the official statement (or replica of any official announcement) on Lucy’s appointment for the role. The following post is simply rumor based and I’m heavily working to try and double check the information submitted to me so as to rapidly confirmed -or not- the news.
It is said that Lucy Durack, currently playing Glinda in the Australian production of Wicked, is taking up the role of Elle Woods in the upcoming Oz production of Legally Blonde.
Previews (are said) to begin Nov 8 & opens November 25 at the Regent Theatre in Melbourne, Australia.
The national tour of LEGALLY BLONDE: THE MUSICAL will open the holiday season at the DuPont Theatre on Tuesday, December 1 and will run through Sunday, December 5, 2009.
LEGALLY BLONDE: THE MUSICAL takes the audience from the sorority house to the halls of justice with Broadway’s brightest heroine and her chihuahua, Bruiser. And Elle Woods does not take “no” for an answer. So when her boyfriend dumps her for someone “serious,” Elle puts down the credit card, hits the books, and sets out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law. Along the way, Elle proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style.
Becky Gulsvig, the Elle understudy in the original Broadway cast, plays Elle Woods in the tour.
